I guess it depends on where you shop.
Our local independent grocer is very reasonable, and always has a bin of special bargains (and no, they're not picked-over-looking!).
I also buy a lot from farmers'/flea markets, and that *can* be economical, but you have to be choosy.
I do buy frozen veggies, but I try to buy the big bulk packs. That works out pretty well.
The only time I buy veggies in the regular grocery is if they've got something on sale, or I need it *really badly*! LOL
Mostly we do pretty well on expenses with veggies.
Fruits now... that's another story!
...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
